Interesting, now it runs smooth again, and CPU load is down. At this point I have not intstalled any new software, nor did I make any changes I could think of. Sure enough inxi -G output is now:
- Code: Select all
Graphics: Card: Intel 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller
X.Org: 1.13.0 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: firstname.lastname@example.org
GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Q45/Q43 GLX Version: 2.1 Mesa 9.0
I while back I had a problem with some of my appearence settings being disredarged at random, this happened maybe every 5th boot or so. I remeber that somebody suggested that a race condition could be the cause and that adding a wait in some script could help. It didn't back then, but maybe the suggested cause could apply here too? What else could be the reason that this boot a different GLX renderer was chosen than yesterday?

Perhaps do you have some remaining tweaks that this new version doesn't like since recent (yesterday's) mint updates which couldn't show up bebore Xorg restart. I don't think this is related to the issues you found and read on github.
I do, but in "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d" . Is this one read and loaded?

Don't really understand why you say this. I am not requesting help, I am kindly asking for it. And, don't the developers want people to test the RC to see if and what problems arise? In my view it makes sense to post this issue, as I am running a very general and not customized system, maybe I am not the only person that is seeing this issue.
